G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….
A young schoolboy was having a hard time pronouncing the letter “R” and all the other
kids were, of course, teasing him about it.
To help him out, the teacher gave him a sentence to practice at home: “Robert gave Richard a
rap in the ribs for roasting the rabbit so rare.” In class a few days later, the teacher asked
the boy to recite the sentence out loud.
The boy nervously eyed his classmates – many of them already laughing at him – then replied,
“Bob gave Dick a poke in the side because the bunny wasn’t cooked enough.” 😐

Wednesday’s Quizzler is……….
Whenever a phrase or sentence becomes part of the common language, there is a strong possibility that it will be quoted inaccurately.
Over the course of time, a letter gets shifted or a word is changed and forevermore the quotation becomes a cliche that nobody ever gets quite right.
Try to complete each proverbial cliche:
1.) “To ______ the lily.” – William Shakespeare
2.) “Under ______ spreading chestnut tree / The village smithy stands.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
3.) “That’s one small step for ______ , one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong
ANSWER: 1.) paint 2.) a 3.) a man * NASA finds credit in the theory of new findings of the missing “a”. Neil Armstrong’s prepared statement which had the “a”, was unheard in the actual statement. This has been an issue of debate since Neil Armstrong’s first step on the moon.
Thursday’s Quizzler is……….
I am like a gigantic dragon winding through deserts, grasslands and plateaus,
and am well over 2,500 years old.
I am high, strong and massive and have a greyish-blue colour,
but parts of my body are now in ruins and have disappeared,
although sections of me that still remain have great historical significance.
I began as a baby dragon some 700 years before the Christ appeared on this earth,
and as the years endured I grew to be an adult,
all the while continuing to strengthen my keepers.
Whilst I am considered to be the longest graveyard in the world,
no one is ever buried within me anymore.
What am I?
